that will affect the defense department and entitlement programs. what do you think? deal or no deal, and if they do reach a deal, can they get it done? >> well, they've got to reach a deal. this is just ridiculous. it was a point after the election where i actually believed -- i don't know about you -- that they had gotten the message that people wanted two houses, the president and congress, republicans and democrats. the people wanted government to work and for people to work together. there was a very short period of time when the speaker came back and he's meeting with the president and he said, maybe these children have actually grown up, with all due respect. now here we are. what are we going to do, pray? new year is tuesday? these consequences would be terrible. you've got working people whose paychecks would get eaten into. you got people who would pay higher taxes who can barely afford it now. unemployment benefits running out. this is just not okay for them to be sitting in their separate corners trying to figure out who is going to win and who is going to lose 'cause eve

it was coming. doug is right, house republicans did act. they acted to stop the defense cuts and stop the tax hikes. what happened since then, senate democrats have done nothing with it. i think president obama, senator reid, they have to bear some responsibility they haven't moved any of this house-passed legislation. it is time for president obama and senator reid to act. >> one thing an amos piece. senate passed a bill which protected folks making 250 and less and small businesses from a tax increase. that is collecting dust in the house right now. jon: well, doug, let me throw it back at you, this is the same senate that hasn't passed a budget in three years, even the president's budget got no votes in the senate the last time around. how can they lay all of the blame at the feet of the house of representatives? >> i would say, look, i think everyone shares in the blame what is going on here and but i do think that what you're seeing on the house is this, a almost a reluctance to take yes for an answer the president has put forward a plan which results in $2 trillion in total spending cut
and his possible nomination as defense secretary. do you think this is a new thing, roland, to shoot down a nomination, when it's just been sort of floated as a trial maroon? >> actually, it's why trial balloons were actually created, to sort of gauge the public, if you will. i still believe president obama should have put ambassador rice's name forward, and he should have dared the united states senate to vote her down. and also, i think, if you look at the administration, they have not done, to be honest, an effective job of really getting the cabinet out in a large way. because you think about the last four years, secretary of education, arne duncan, he had an opportunity to really step out there. secretary of state, hillary clinton, defense secretary bob gates. but you did not have, again, your labor secretary. you didn't have your commerce secretary, your energy secretary. so he relied on sort of the people just around him. i think this administration and the president should do a better job of getting his cabinet out there, because, frankly, most americans don't even know who the re
with a narrow plan like you described, if he came out now with a big plan that did entitlements and defense, did spending, and said, simpson-bowles revised here, let's go forward, there would be a deal but it will never happen. >>gregg: will republicans regret they did not vote for plan "b"? >> they may feel like this did in august, they should have taken the deal but, look, the real problem the republicans should regret is never having a public strategy, and get the taxes off early on, and done that and made their case about the debt and been in this national debate because they have paid the price. >> they never talked economic growth. >> guys, hang on. when we come back we have a lot to talk about including the newtown massacre and the latest on the benghazi report. you know how painful heartburn can be. for fast, long lasting relief, use doctor recommended gaviscon®. only gaviscon® forms a protective barrier that helps block stomach acid from splashing up- relieving the pain quickly. try fast, long lasting gaviscon®. >>heather: the mother of a marine veteran saying he has been admitted to
in big d, and i remember sitting in the press box watching the cowboys' defense closely and thinking to themselves, they have no idea how to stop robert griffin iii. none. he went nuts. quarterback rating of 131.8. 19 of 27. 304yards. four touchdowns. four. now, the other guy on the other side, this is one of them here, he's going to roll into the end zone, redskins won 38-31. only their second win in a row of this current six-game winning streak. they were 4-6 at the time. greasing the wheels at that point. now, like you say, how did we get to here? the guys talk about yesterday not letting the game get too much of sunday's game, not letting the emotions take over. >> i told the guys, you know, don't play this up so big, that you can't seize it. like i was telling you guys, you got to make sure you approach it the same exact way that you have the past six weeks, and know that, you know, it's for all the marbles, whatever you want to say. but don't go out and play scared. >> football is an emotional game. you're at home, playing for everything. but if you lose it, you can lose contro
who don't want to do anything as far as defense in the schools and i think we could regret that if there were another incident that might have been prevented. >> surely a big debate about that. under the plan each public school would designate one person to keep the gun in a secure, locked location. it would be a voluntary program. state law would need to be amended before that plan can move forward. >>> customers at starbucks this morning reacting to ceo howard schultz's plan telling workers in the washington, d.c., stores to write the words "come together" on coffee cups. >> "come together." a nice beatles quote there. i think it's kind of a cool idea, but i -- you know, i don't know that the politicians really care. >> i think it means that people are basically tired that congress can't come to a compromise or actually agree on anything, if we're talking about something as huge as sdp that's going to affect taxes that affect everybody else in the united states, it's indicative of the kind of deadlock that we're at in the system right now. >> it's all about the fiscal cli

to come out. why? and what steps is the department taking, the defense department, taking now over this? >> reporter: well, it took this couple actually weeks to get access to the videotapes that they then saw showing their young child being abused by the day care workers bad enough. the army said they had to wait because there was a criminal case pending. but, look, these parents wanted the -- all the parents wanted the full information about what had happened to their children. i have now spoken to at least half a dozen parents who had children at this day care facility. you hear the same thing from them, that the army initially just simply didn't react fast enough. didn't tell them the full information about what was going on. it took several weeks. now the army does have a full investigation under way and as you pointed out, it has all led to president obama picking up the phone, calling the pentagon and saying, what on earth is going on. >> barbara starr, thank you very much. >>> you can watch barbara's entire report tonight on erin burnett out front 7:00 p.m. eastern here on cnn.
. this is not a perfect bill, as no bill is perfect. it does make cuts in entitlements, it does cut defense, it does raise taxes, and it does attack the budget deficit. >> if this budget package is adopted, the deficit of the united states will be reduced substantially. that is not hot air. >> clayton: does that sound like something you may have heard from lawmakers today? that was over 20 years ago. does washington ever change its tone or their debate? let's ask the man who served in the white house of policy. good morning to you, peter, and welcome to the show. >> good morning. glad to be here. >> clayton: does this ever change? i moon, 1990, it sounds like we're going over the exact same things again here in 2012. >> what's most immediately relevant is what happened as a result of that package. the spending cuts were never really enacted. the tax increases pushed the economy into recession. and so the deficit increased rather than declined. so it went from 220 billion in 1990 to 269 billion in 1991, 290 billion in 1992. i think that's directly relevant today because i think the obama tax increases are
